There aren’t enough words in the human language to describe Col. Bruce Hampton. This night was certainly not a tragedy. While heartbreaking, it was strangely beautiful. Only the Colonel could gather the most legendary musicians of our time to celebrate his life, then leave it behind to join the stars in the sky. He had the distinct honor of playing his own memorial service—an experience no other species is capable of. It was during the encore, the very last notes, that the universe got its mojo back.

Thank you Col. Bruce Hampton, for the endless laughs, life lessons, and career-shaping wisdom you’ve shared with your musical community. The jam scene would not be anywhere that it is today without your guidance.

* With Happy Birthday Bruce Hampton

Show Notes: Here is my stab at both the setlist and the musicians who participated. I may have some mispelled names. I may not have included every musician who may have played on certain songs,but hopefully someone took some complete notes. I did try and keep track the best I could, but my mind may have been in other places, especially at the end of the show.

It is with great sorrow and a heavy heart, that I dedicate this recordng and upload in memorium to a great friend of mine, Col. Bruce Hampton. After seeing him perform for almost 30 years, I will miss him immensely. He has meant SO MUCH to both myself and the Atlanta Music Community, and the entire National Music Community for that matter! He was one of a kynd! You certainly went out in the right place among your family, fellow musicians, friends, and adoring fans.

RIP my dear friend Bruce. I Love You and will always cherish our friendship!
